Our upper level skiers have been out on the race circuit a few times this season competing in the qualifiers for the Junior nationals. At the SL and GS qualifiers in Big Sky, Katie Holm, Evie Wright, Lewis White and Wyatt Kray competed in an Elite level FIS series. Katie led the way with some very good skiing starting from the 20’s moving into the top 15 in three races. The rest of the group was attending their first Elite level series and it was quite a challenge, but all improved their skiing through the week. Becoming a great ski racer has lots of challenges and the pressure of competition really makes you push your limits to get better. I expect all of them to come back to show some new strength and perseverance in our NW Cup Series.
The weather was sunny and mild for Big Sky and the groomers were perfect for warm up and free skiing. What a great place for racing! Here are a few photos in action.
